American Saddlebred Registry Approves New Rule Changes



Lexington, Kentucky - The American Saddlebred Registry (ASR) Board of Directors has adopted two new Registry rule changes.

The rule changes were approved and adopted by the ASR Board of Directors at a meeting in February of this year, which took place in conjunction with the 2011 American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Annual Convention and Youth Conference, held in Lexington, Kentucky.

The following language was added to Registry Rule Section III. C:
If a stallion is sold and the seller retains frozen semen with ownership rights, a contract of sale or statement of the parties must be filed with the registry verifying that the seller has authority to sign breeder’s certificates and stallion service reports for foals conceived by the use of retained frozen semen. The contract must include the signatures of the buyer and the seller or their authorized agents.

Another change approved by the ASR Board was A Non-Member Transaction Fee, which will allow non-members of ASHA to conduct business with the Registry, such as registering or transferring ownership of a horse. The fee is $50 per transaction.

An Application for Registration can be obtained from the ASHA website.  Please contact Katriona Adams at (859) 475-1460, or by email at k.adams@asha.net  with any questions.
